Taking on his surname makes my name sound incredibly posh. But I like it, even if I think it is going to take a few days/weeks/forever for it to sink in. I feel incredibly grown-up, despite not having a driver's license or owning a home... I'm married. He's no longer my partner, my fiancé, he's my husband. I'm rather wrapped that its legally done now.

(It's even consummated bwahaha)

And the last of our guests leave tomorrow morning, and we shall have the house back to ourselves, and our poor precious cat will stop fraeaking out about having her home invaded. Our wedding has been very non-traditional, but at the same time so very US, we have been very pleased by how it all went.

I'm getting married today. I'm getting married today. I'm getting married today!

Had an amazing meal with the family last night, and the restaurant even shouted us dessert & a round of shots. All in all, for all my procrastination and stuff, this has led to a small, stress-free, low-budget event. I'm really happy with the way things have fallen into place.

xans: Xans (Nude)
I've always considered marriage to be like getting to have your best friend over for a sleepover... Every night.

Well, I've procrastinated liek whoa, but the fact of the matter is, I'm getting married in 9 days. (I become a step-mum to four adults when I do this, and 'grandmother' to nine grandchildren. We gotta come up with a hip grandma-name for me, lol. And not Nana Hana, because ew, I hate the word Nana.) I've been with Alan for five years now. Officially got engaged two years ago. Went through idea after idea of what I wanted, and found I hated the idea of stressing trying to sort out a venue, celebrant, clothes, rings, cake, etc. So anyway. Time flew by, but the date is now set.

We're getting married at a Registry on Monday the 26th of November. Having a family get together to eat & celebrate on Sunday the 25th of November. I have my dress, he has his outfit. No rings, but that's because I think I need a custom job and we both put that off for too long.

I'm not worried about that. The legal stuff is going to be done, the family is going to gather to wish us well. Those, I think, are the important bits.

xans: Xans (Nude)
So... If I want to have a conversation with my darling, it helps if I'm not pantsless. On the other hand, if I want to get him to agree to anything I suppose I can distract him with lacy underthings. It wasn't an important conversation I was trying to have, anyway. (I was bitching about body hair)

My parcel has arrived! I'm so glad I decided to back Amanda Palmer's kickstarter for Theatre is Evil. Now I just kinda wish Alan was at work so I could listen through the CD (I like to listen first time all on my lonesome so no one/nothing distracts me). Unfortunately the weather isn't nice enough for me to suggest he have some man-time up at the nudie beach. (I like going with him to the nudie beach sometimes too, but he will lay out there for hours and hours and I can't with my precious delicate pale skin) I will just have to wait.

Also took my engagement ring in to get its rhodium plating redone, resized, and cleaned up. have temporarily relocated my silver heart ring onto that hand so I don't feel naked. I still panic somewhat at the sensation of no ring on my right hand, but it's less of a panic than if it were my left hand, where I'd be all, "oh fuck, did I lose it?" Not a ring I ever want to lose.

I love how Alan talks of the wedding being my first and only wedding. Because even though I'm going to outlive him (I still want 30 years from him), apparently I will be ruined for all other men, because none shall be as awesome and charming and handsome as he. :D Of course, if I do get my 30 years than I will be almost 60, maybe I could try my hand at becoming a cougar... I honestly have no idea.

USA, to absolutely no one's surprise, lost to the Wallabies in the rugby. All Blacks quite fortunately kicked French ass last night, which goes a long way towards making up for shock upsets of the French beating New Zealand in the last few world cups.

Alan brought home a crayfish for dinner, normally they cost $100/kg, so ours would have cost around $150... we got ours for $40 worth of beer. And mmmm it was damn tasty.

Gratch appears to have broken a tooth... keeping an eye on her to see if a vet visit is absolutely necessary. Might need to for a round of antibiotics or something. Also need to get her flea and worm treatment, it being springtime and all.

I finally have my engagement ring, of which my facebook friends have seen blurry pics of. Not that I didn't like wearing the ring that had been Alan's mum and grandmother's, although it was a tad small... it's also one the boys may want to use if/when they get engaged. This ring however I got to pick out and is exclusively mine mwahahahaha. I love it though it's a sapphire with two small diamonds on each side and then a bunch of tiny ones along the band of white gold, which is twisty. I will, however, need to get it re-sized as it is a tiny bit too loose. There should be more resistance to slide it over my knuckle.

Currently we are re-watching Firefly (omg so much love), and I'm also rereading Terry Pratchett's Wee Free Men and the next two Tiffany Aching books. Also need to find out if the fourth one is in paperback yet (I prefer paperback to hardcover, don't know why).

Speaking of books, gor anyone who hasn't read it, and loves a good in depth fantasy series, look up Elizabeth Moon's Deed of Paksenarrion novels. There's the original trilogy: Sheepfarmer's Daughter, Divided Allegiance, & Oath of Gold. Two prequels known as the Legacy of Gird: Surrender None & Liar's Oath. Then there's her newest set, Oath of Fealty, Kings of the North, and an as yet unnamed and unwritten third novel.

Also Daylight Savings just kicked in today which came as a great surprise... don't remember seeing a lot of ads leading up to it (saying check your smoke alarms) and if they mentioned on the news, I missed it.

We bought a new tv just after Christmas, a Boxing Day Sale. The tv stand we have is quite old, and ratty, and doesn't fit the tv properly. So today we bought a new one, it will arrive in 3-5 weeks. And we decided to peek at dining suites. Aaaaand they offered us a deal. So, we've got a new dining suite coming as well. Hell, we've been meaning to upgrade it at some point. Now's as good a time as any. Next bit of furniture is a new mattress. Looking at maybe putting the electric blanket back on the bed soon.

Gratch hates the change in the weather, it was raining last night so she came into the bedroom at 3 a.m. to complain. At the top of her lungs. Noisy little tart. She's going to have to get over it though.

I also spoiled my darling a bit today, and bought him a pair of hush puppies for work. The floor at Mega is hard concrete and his shoes just haven't been doing the trick. He spent some of his pay buying some new black trousers but was going to have to wait until after the rent pay before buying new shoes. I can't stand the thought of him being uncomfortable for that long though and offered to buy a pair for him.

I set up an OpenID over at dreamwidth. I've been looking for new fanfic lately and a lot of stuff I find on lj is several years old. Have a sneaking suspicion I haven't kept up with fandom and they've all snuck off without me. Going to try to get reacquainted with it all and also leave comments and stuff.

So I realise some people probably could care less to know this about my body, but this is one of the first months in ages I haven't needed painkillers to get me through the first day of bleeding hell. Wonder what I've done differently in the lead up to allow that lovely break. Also, I am shockingly bad at remembering to pay attention to the dates to keep an accurate count, because while I am fairly regular I've never been, say, exactly 28 days apart or something. Just something I really should keep better track of.

A couple people pointed out an article and website regarding women and sexual harassment on the street... quickly had to click the 'x' before overwhelming feminist rage kicked in. Not the best time to read about how much some men suck.

That being said, my man is rather awesome. And adoring. And adorkable. I'm such a mushy girl for him.

The store he has been working so hard on setting up the last two months is at last finished and opened on Friday. Friends and family got to come check it out on Thursday night, it looks pretty cool. I also got to speak with the owners and Tricia wants a formal talk with me next week about if and where I could fit in there. Soooooooooo fingers crossed. I would really love to get a job there. And soon his hours should settle down so hopefully I will get to see more of my darling again.

He was cracking up, they had an 8-page article/ad in the local newspaper which included photos and mini-bios of all the managers, and he had people coming into the store and recognising him. Plus one of the reps he deals with was like, "That bio was so you!" Also he got given a DeWalt drill worth $700 as a prize for selling the most DeWalt products in one day, ever, of all the stores. Pretty awesome.

They had a deal at our local video shop 5 ex-rentals for $45 (avg ex-rental is $12.99 this puts them at $9 ea), so Alan got us The Last Airbender, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Resident Evil: Afterlife, Despicable Me, and The Legend of the Guardians. Have only watched the 1st two so far... found the acting in the first one to be mediocre but the effects were way awesome. Enjoyed the second one immensely, was a bit of light-hearted fun and I have to admit I loved the tie-in with the Fantasia scene.

With the theatre in our town being closed (I hear it's getting a big revamp) there have been so many movies we've missed on the big screen, but now we have a 50" it's not so bad lmao. Still, with winter coming on trips to the beach for sun-bathing are not going to be the thing, and will start to be too cold for kayaking before long (haven't done nearly as much of that as I should have). So really hoping the movie theatre reopens soon so we can make that a winter event to break the boredom.

Alan's mum came to visit us for a week. After losing Gladys, I think she knew she needed some time away from the rest home to escape the loneliness. I introduced her to Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series, because the books are sooooooooo much better than the show.

Goodkind wrote those books with a specific plot to get from point A to point B, and the show pushes that aside to explore every old fantasy trope that ever was... okay, idk if that's true, I barely lasted it to the first ads of the first ep, and 5 mins of an ep where Cara failed to be a spectacularly bad-ass mord-sith, and uh, yeah, mord-sith don't have sisters because they are taken as ONLY CHILDREN and effed up... yes I'm down to incoherent ranting with how WRONG the show is. :( I'm sure it's all very entertaining if you don't know the source material, but I do, and even if I have my rants about that, it's still a million times better than Legend of the Seeker.

Anyway, she likes the books, and is borrowing them and some others. And we got her to watch some movies she hadn't seen.

At the end of it we took her to the SPCA (like the humane society), so she could buy a cat. Another way to beat the loneliness. She picked out a rather pretty girl by the name of Clarissa, who is being renamed Missy. She's mostly white with some tortoise-shell colouring. Very calm, and very friendly. Settling in well, last I heard.

Alan had his mum's old engagement ring and got me to try it on. It fits, so I am wearing it, but I am still wanting a sapphire ring that he will buy for me. Nothing against the sentimental value of the ring I am wearing, but I am wanting something picked out especially for me. :)

Every day, I cannot quite get over the fact I can look out my living room window and see the ocean. Than in 2 minutes I can go from my front doorstep to sandy beach. It's unreal. I always grew up with The Beach being an exotic destination, a real treat. Now, I get to live by one every day. If we ever have to move, it won't ever be the same as When We Lived at the Beach.

Speaking of which, got to go kayaking yesterday for the first time of this season. 'Twas glorious. My muscles ache. I aim to get fitter at this whole kayaking thing. I honestly don't know how I managed to shed all that weight I'd put on in the last few years, and I'm soooo proud to be slipping into size 12 jeans again, but my tummy is still a little soft and flabby for my taste. I need my own gloves and seat for my kayak though. My other aim for this summer is to get ridiculously brown and avoid burning as much as possible.

...I left the laundry on the line. Oops.

I am also considering cutting my hair again. It's really long, and thick, and summer is the time I don't want to fuss about with it. I have a style I'd like to try but am not sure how well it will work with my curly hair. It looks gorgeous with straight hair. I'm just... lazy about straightening my hair all the time.

Watched a few movies recently, and I must say...

The Hurt Locker -- SUCKS. Seriously bad. I wanted to shoot all the characters in that, and, just... horribly, horribly sucky.

From Paris With Love -- YES. Funny, action bull-shit. The oddest pairing, not what I would ever have thought of, but very well played. Also... John Travolta gets a Royale With Cheese.

Prince of Persia -- I am unfamiliar with the source material, but I enjoyed it. It was a good fun adventure with cool combinations of action, snark, and mystic stuff. I Not a role I'm used to Gyllenhaal in but he wasn't bad.


Kind of in love with Bruno Mars at the moment. His music is quite catchy and his voice is not unpleasant.

Also, Glee. Cannot believe I got sucked into it but DAMN can they sing.

Brooke Fraser, I like her still. There's Something In the Water indeed.

Mumford sons - little lying man also a favourite at the moment.

Oh, I updated my status on Facebook but I guess I never got around to mentioning it here... on the 19th of November was my 3 year anniversary of getting together with Alan. He told me once that if we made 3 years, he would consider making it legal. So... I am now ENGAGED. I don't have a ring yet because of certain financial hiccups, but it will come. Oh yes, it will come. I'm looking at sapphires.

Looking at a medieval/fantasy style wedding. Possibly in a Jan/Feb time of year. Not 2011, obviously.

So I just got home from a nice few days away with Alan. He's got like three weeks of leave. The first thing we did was on the Saturday before we left, we went up to Palmerston North for the birthday of Chris and Cathy's granddad. It was nice, although the weather was shite. We also caught up with a good friend of his, Kat, and checked out our old stomping grounds, the Woolworths-turned-Countdown (looking awesome!) and the slightly smaller Mitre 10 Mega. Said hi to a few folks.

Anyway, on the Tuesday, we drove up to Cathy's place in the Taranaki, just outside of a place called Manaia. The mountain decided to be shy, so no photos. We caught up with Cathy, I got to meet her partner Scott, and Cathy's mum Marty came over for dinner. Next day we checked out Opunake, the wee town where Chris and Cathy were teenagers and got into mischief. Looked at a couple stores, had a really nice coffee at the cafe there, before heading off. We decided to drive up to Hamilton by the New Plymouth route.

New Plymouth is one city neither Alan nor I have been to, and I would like to go back there for a longer stay at some stage. There were some interesting shops to check out and a coffee place we were reccommended but did not actually feel like stopping at this time. It was overcast but muggy and just a bit too hot for coffee. Our drive up the coast revealed some rather fine land sheltered between ocean and high hills and cliffs, ideal for cutting off and developing into a zombie-free zone. There were even tunnels ideal for building gates.

Arrived in Hamilton, where we planned to spend three nights and two days. Wandered around town Thursday morning before going over to [ profile] pandoras_evil_t to visit and see my goddaughter. Sorcha is such a little cutie. Had a nice little visit, managed to score some rum for Alan for his birthday, as well as the gin and instant kiwi as part of my chrissy present. The instant kiwi won me $2. I may have imitated that macca's ad with the ginger when I found that.

Friday the 19th was Alan's birthday. He may have whined a bit that he didn't have cake, so I was going to make one... but first we went shopping at the Base. That took longer than I expected, and by the time we got back, dad was making the cake. So I agreed to do the icing. The evening's plan was to attend this concert and picnic dinner on the Rhodedendrum lawn of the Hamilton Gardens, and that was very entertaining. There was even cake for Alan, complete with icing.

My dad and Suzy found this ginger kitten outside their house just after Christmas, that they brought in. Suzy named him Sherlock, and she's his human. She doesn't understand this, but I've told her she gets no say in the matter. She's his favourite, and that's how it's going to be. I'm glad they have the kitten, as all their pets are getting on in years, and the puppy my step-sister Carla gave them last year died of a congenital thing after only a couple of weeks. Anyway, their new kitten is a bundle of mischief. But so cute.

Oh, and Alan was driving over to the Warehouse near where my dad lives, listening to the Rock, and he happened to be following the Rock van at the time. It gets announced tha the first person to the rock van outside would win a free Hell's pizza, so hey! He hopped on over and won us a free pizza. Unfortunately it was only from one of two hell's pizzas in Hams, so we grabbed it that evening even though we already had dinner sorted. It meant we had leftovers, hee.

Saturday we headed up to the Coromandal. Dad gave us directions to take this country route, but he got me confused after the third or fourth left-turn/right-turn, so we went the sign-posted way, and caught ourselves a hitch-hiker. He was this young South African guy heading to Paeroa to interview an old woman there (I forget her name) who had been charged for growing cannibis (she took it for her arthritis) with all these miscellaneous charges of gang-related stuff and all that. He was doing a doco about it but his ride had to cancel and so he was hitching. We were nice. :D

Anyway, should we ever win lotto, I think we'll be settling down in the Coromandel; it's really gorgeous up there, and the prices are not that bad. It's more expensive here where we live! But we got to the motor camp, had a look at the options available to stay in, and settled on these cabin/caraven hybrids, that were kitted with everything but toilets and hot water, and were only $65 a night. We were going to stay one night, and then decided to stay for two. And then Alan promptly went fishing, while I got a bit of sunbathing in.

I'd gone to grab the camera, and by the time I got back to Alan on the rocks, he'd caught his first snapper. It was only a little one, just barely legal (possibly) that was a fine addition to our dinner of fish and chips. Then Alan went for an evening fish, where I got some lovely sunset photos, and he caught another snapper, again small, but still legal. I don't know how we managed it, but we did wake before dawn and so he was able to get in a morning fish. One was too small and he had to throw back, but the other was fine.

We took a drive into Whitianga, where shops were amazingly open on a Sunday, and bought a couple things, checked out the local Mitre 10, and got some supplies from New World. Like beer. :D So in the afternoon I got some more sunbathing, he had rotton luck at fishing, before we went for another drive and explore... He tried for another evening fish, but nothing wanted to get caught, and they didn't in the morning, either.

Finally yesterday was the drive home, and it was a long drive home. Not only because of (extremely) slow drivers, and (frequent) roadworks, but because we did a bit of a tiki-tour without the aid of maps to show us the quickest route. I saw more of back country roads than I expected to, and learned I ought to be more assertive in my opinions, because the route I thought was more direct was the more direct, but he was leery of following a gravel road. No matter, it just meant we had a long day of him driving.

Coming home kinda sucked, because Joe and Heaven had been making use of the entire house, and that's fucked with my OCD. Things in the kitchen weren't where they were supposed to go, and they'd helped themselves to more than just the perishables we'd said they could use... I apologised to Alan because I kinda started bitching inside of five minutes, and it didn't help that I was tired (and thus, cranky) and that Joe wanted to fill us in on all the things that had been happening while we were gone and hear all about our trip right then and there. I think I told him a couple times we just wanted to relax and unwind a bit, if that wasn't too much trouble.

As it is, Gratch has formed a new bad habit. It started just before we left, but she has taken to curling up and sleeping on the dining table in the kitchen. I have taught her from an early age that kitchen benchtops and tables (be it dining, outdoor, or coffee) are off-limits to kitty. Now I'm going to have to fight her on it all over again.

Anyway, I posted some pictures from the holiday on my facebook, for those who are interested (and if you're interested but don't have me added on fb, feel free to make the request). So yeah. That's life.

Am about to bake another banana cake. Mmmm....

My grandchildren :P Isabella and Danielle are at the standing up stage, almost walking without assistance. And just so cute.

Love, love, love my man. For putting up with me when I am moody and not sleeping well and just generally blah. And hating my body for its oh-so-terrible timing on the arrival of this month's period.

It's a beautiful sunny day. This makes me happy anyway.

Saw some movies I quite enjoyed... The Spirit, and Mall Cop, and I can't remember if I said we watched Fast and the Furious Four... plus renting out Underworld: Rise of the Lycans again so we could watch it properly.

Anyway... baking time.

xans: Xans (Lorne: STFU)
Okay, so, wow, my last update was way back at the beginning of the year. Since then, Alan's son Joe has moved into our sleepout, and more days than not, his girlfriend Heaven lives with us as well. Not best pleased about this, but he's Alan's boy, and while Joe's an aggravation, I understand not kicking him to the curb when we can offer him temporary shelter. The problem is that Joe is lazy and has little motivation to get a job, which he needs to afford a flat.

I feel slightly hypocritical to critisize his laziness in job-hunting, since I have been pretty slack myself in the months since we've moved here. The difference is that Alan's salary is able to support both of us and thus, while I would like a job for my own spending money and to help cover some of the bills, it is not exactly urgent that I be working. Joe, on the otherhand, has to pay board because of the extra food costs feeding him and his girlfriend. I could go on with my complaints about them, but perhaps I shall save my rant for later.

One nice thing about living where we are is that we now see Chris and Tarns (and the grandkids) more often. The twins are as cute as ever, although Isabella is definitely my favourite. Danielle has a tendency to cling to her nana (Tarn's mum Lisa) and cry if anyone else tries to hold her. Sadly, Lisa's husband Danny (Danielle's namesake) passed away from a heart attack at the end of May. He had lung cancer and was very ill, but while not unexpected, it's still sad for Tarn's and her family. Apparently his ghost likes to haunt their new home a bit and switch the tv channel to the crime channel all the time.

Speaking of cancer, my grandpa (dad's dad) has all sorts of cancer through his body, and is not doing so well. I've had a bit of pressure from Dad and Iain to find a way to see him and grandma before it's too late, since I haven't seen them since 1993. One thing that stops me is that my US passport is expired and NZ one is missing, and so I have the cost of replacing those, plus air fares... Naturally if I take a trip to the US mum will expect me to stop in WA for part of the trip, so that's an extra cost to work out. Currently I don't have the funds, and while Iain has offered to help, I'm still a very independent girl.

My other problem with this is that, while they may be my grandparents, they are rather Christian goody-goods and I do not feel I have a lot in common with them. Naturally I will hear the same encouragements about finishing my degree and being the last of nine grandchildren to do this, that, or the other thing. There's also the fact they refer to Alan as my 'friend' rather than boyfriend or partner, which, little thing though it is, makes me want to grind my teeth a little.

In November it will be two years for Alan and I, which is rather cool. He says if we make three years he will seriously consider making it legal. Which is sweet. I love him dearly.

As some of you commented in my last entry, yes, my 24th birthday was just a couple of weeks ago. I got most of my presents early, in a couple sweet parcels from my mum, and then what Alan bought me. He promised me two things: a particular lego set, and rack of lamb. Plus something else unspecified. In the end that unspecified gift turned out to be a set of earrings and necklace that are tear-drop rubies. :D Very pretty and nice and totally unexpected. Plus the lego, one of the new pirate sets, and then on my birthday we went to a restaurant where I had rack of lamb.

I haven't got it yet, but Joe and Heaven asked what they could get me for my birthday and I requested the book Pride & Prejudice and Zombies. Ever since I saw it advertised in the Warehouse mailer I've wanted it for the sheer crackiness of it. I think it could be all kinds of awesome.

Wiki- According to Grahame-Smith, the original text of the novel was well-suited for use as a zombie horror story:

“You have this fiercely independent heroine, you have this dashing heroic gentleman, you have a militia camped out for seemingly no reason whatsoever nearby, and people are always walking here and there and taking carriage rides here and there,” he said. “It was just ripe for gore and senseless violence. From my perspective anyway."

One of my motivations to get a job, actually, is that I've put on a bit of weight in the time I've been with Alan. I'm not fat, or any such thing, but I've gone from a size 10 to a size 12-14, and 34-D to 34/36-DD depending on style. It's not that I want to lose a lot of weight, but I'd like to be a comfortable size 12 instead of an uncomfortable 12/borderline 14. Also I just wanna be more fit so that if/when the zombies arrive I'm not so out of shape that they can catch me.

In another week and a half I'm going to to Hamilton to hopefully be present for the birth of [ profile] pandoras_evil_t's parasite. Provided the baby's on time. Anyhow, here's hoping that doesn't imbue me with either the strong desire to copy, or the strong desire to never do the baby-making thing. Should be fun, eh? :D

Yesterday this girl came through my checkout with a t-shirt that read, "Sweet in just the right places" or something very similar. I can't tell you how swiftly my mind flew to the dirtybadwrong place and I played the "Is she hot enough to go gay for?" game for a couple of seconds there. And in my mind Alan was watching with approval, 'cause he's a dirty lusty man. :D

It will be one year with him next month and he still makes me deliriously happy.

I got this in an email recently:

Do the math on the Paul McCartney - Heather Mills divorce.

After only five (5) years of marriage, he paid her $49 million to dissolve the marriage.

Assuming he banged her every night during their five (5) year relationship (and being married men, we all know THAT doesn't happen), it ends up costing him a mere $26,835 per lay, not counting attorney's fees and court costs.

On the other hand, Elliot Spitzer's call girl, Kristen charges $4,000 an hour - crazy, right?

But... had Paul McCartney employed Kristen for five (5) years, he would've paid $7.3 million for an hour of sex every night for five years (a savings of $41+ million).

Value-added benefits are:

· A 22 year old hot babe;
· No begging;
· No coaxing;
· Never a headache;
· Wide open menu;
· Ability to put BOTH legs around you;
· No bitching or complaining;
· No 'to do' lists.

Best of all, she leaves when you're done and she returns the next day, ready for another round.

All, at a small fraction (1/7th) of the cost with none of those annoying and pricey legal fees.

After doing all the math. Would you own or rent?

I forwarded it on to my darling man, who, naturally, had a thing or two to say...

Haha This raises some good points. However i have a
* 22 yr old hot babe
* A little begging now and then
* A little coaxing now and then
* Headache?? I have Panadol!!!
* mmmmm wide open menu
* Both legs around me
* No bitching and only a little complaining
* no to do lists

So I think i will stick to owning

Love and adore you my darling

Hee. One of the guys who works in the trade department in Mega found out the age difference between us, and the fact we have lived together since shortly after we got together. His new goal is to grow up to be just like my darling.

xans: Xans (Default)
And I had to do it alone, because Alan was still in bed. Nekkid. And everyone looks a bit freaked out if a nekkid man is chasing sheep. Boy sheep. They'd been munching in the paddock next to our place but the gate between the paddock and our lawn was open. So I chased them out. And later we went into town to see The Zohan.

But then... here's a meme:

You know how sometimes people on your friend's list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when are they working THERE? Since when are they dating HIM/HER? since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you *should* already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy mine below, erase my answers putting yours in their place then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration! One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out :)

1. First Name: Hana. And get it right. It's not pronounced the same as "Hannah." It's more gentle than that. Prettier. If you can go "ah" everything will be okay.

2. Age: 22, zomg, but I turn 23 next month. Like... the 15th of next month, so, yeah. 1 month to go.

3. Location: We tiny little 2-bdrm farmhouse between Palmy and Pahiatua. But I work and make attempts at studying in Palmy.

4. Occupation: Part-time checkout chick, part-time uni sucker, and that's about it.

5. Partner: Alan, my darling yummy man. Who I never expected to fall for, but have found myself madly happily in love with. Adore him, and living with him. It never did bother me to realise the age difference except right back at the very beginning, when I thought, "Damn, he's gonna think I'm too young for him."

6. Kids: I have none. He has four and two of them are older than me! Okay, technically Joe is also older than me--he turns 23 on Wednesday. But, uh... we won't talk about that.

7. Brothers/Sisters: One brother. Three step-sisters. Other step-siblings on Gary's side, but haven't really had a thing to do with them.

8. Pets: No pets, as of yet.

9. List the 3-5 biggest things going on in your life:
- Alan
- Work
- Uni
- Computer Game
- Upcoming birthday

10. Parents: Mum, who's a kiwi, married to my step-dad (an American) and living in the States. Dad, who's an American, married to my step-mum (an Australian) and living in NZ.

11. Who are some of your closest friends?: [ profile] pandoras_evil_t, [ profile] diea, Alan, Matt, and Ngamiri. [ profile] thesimpleman, sometimes, too. :P

My darling has fun teasing me over my rage at getting words wrong. Disorientated verses disorented. Perverse verses perverted. "Extra-sensual perception" rather than extra-sensory. How to pronounce 'tortilla'. It irks me to get it wrong.

xans: Xans (Galactic Peace)
Yes, I am still alive and well. Darling and I are still happily in love.

(He has, in fact, made the 3-month mark, which I don't believe any man has before. There's also the fact that we fell in love in the first month or so, which in itself is amazing and wonderful too)

I'm thinking I shall compose an entry of doom concerning the mischief I've been up to over the past few weeks. But that probably won't get posted until next week. Hope y'all don't mind.

Apologies for not commenting lots, even if I do take the effort to check your ljs to see what's been going on. I frequently haven't had the time or inclination, because I don't always have something to say.

<3 I really need to get the internets at home, so I can get chatting on MSN with some of you again. Still working on some snail mail, though.
